Small to mid-size companies. Active ATS users to update candidate progress in real time. You have the option for candidates to apply through a URL, or to forward them/upload them into the ATS. Highly recommend for companies that need an ATS on a budget to manage candidates and move away from inbox management

We used Workable at a start-up which was extremely wise. We weren't hiring for 50 open requisitions, we were hiring usually for five or six requisitions at a time. The cost and functionality were so helpful that we used this platform up until we were growing exponentially. After our growth took off, it made sense to utilize a different tool (especially as expectations in measurements shifted).

Workable

  • My company is a relatively small startup and we love to maximize each employees social media reach to help find high quality candidates. I can easily go into the "Jobs" section, see open positions and then post to social media sites. If I find who I think might be a qualified candidate can refer them inside of Workable by clicking "Refer a Candidate"
  • Prior to using Workable there was no way for me to easily provide input after interviewing a candidate and see what other interviewers had to say. Now I can quickly input my feedback, see other employees feedback.
  • I personally have a busy schedule that includes travel so it was nice to quickly access a candidate prior to an interview, see their resume and where they are in the interview process. Our HR team loves the Google calendar integration so they can check my schedule and get something set up when I'm going to actually be in the office and available.

Workable

  • The route from the home screen isn't generally instinctive. In any case, once you become acclimated to it, it is anything but a major ordeal.
  • When printing resumes, enable them to keep up their unique arranging presented by the competitor
  • Coordinate an element like Assistant.to for booking with the goal that I can give applicants a few diverse schedule openings to look over that consequently match up to my timetable

It's become a part of the fabric of our hiring process and we are growing like crazy! Once we have a working platform in place the cost of the change management typically far out weighs the benefits derived from the change! It's especially hard to change a process with employees who are not key stake holders, they are alway hesitant to invest time in a new product they are only going to use once in a while. With that said if something else came along with benefits far and above workable that we would gain a clear lift in productivity and capabilities we would make the change, we've done it with other parts of our tech stack

Alternatives Considered

ApplicantStack

Customization of all aspects of the job board/posting that the candidate sees.

Workable

SnapHire is a great system, but hard to customise on your own and a lot more expensive Taleo, more suited to a large recruitment team where reporting is important, very clunky and not intuitive, not user friendly at all

Return on Investment

ApplicantStack

  • Cheaper ATS with strong candidate management functionality
  • Able to screen candidates quickly utilizing questionnaires and scoring
  • Easily able to filter through candidates using the boolean search functionality

Workable

  • Previously we had an Excel spreadsheet which meant it was very difficult to pipeline and identify future talent, Workable allows you to do this in an easy and simple way.
  • Candidates don't fall through the cracks, easy to manage.
